Smooth Move. It's a tea at most Walgreens/Kroger

Drink a lot of water (3L+ each day), eat plenty of fibrous fruits and food like oatmeal, and if that still doesn't work then have psyllium husk with water, it's a most natural extracted fiber and world like a charm every single time

Fiber. Prune juice. Enema. Or take one for the team and grab your ankles while the front desk person enters the no fly zone. Well that's assuming it's Virgin airlines.

Eat curry!

Psyllium husk capsules. Take 3 at night and then have coffee in the morning: shit everything out 10 minutes after you settle in at the client!

Oatmeal

Or a very easy pill. Smooth move gets a lot of good press

I've dealt with following surgeries and it's miserable. Along with lots of water, whole grains, and fresh fruits/veggies, Senna tablets are pretty gentle and effective. My GP recommended. If you just need help short-term, Dulcolax overnight works well and doesn't cause cramping. If you need something quickly (like now!), Dulcolax (and others) make suppositories. If you can get past the insertion bit, you'll get relief within 15 minutes.

Psyllium husk is non habit forming btw

Probiotics help too, kinda normalizes the bacteria in your gut and helps you poo. I've had the same thing when I traveled and having somewhat of a routine in what I ate and probiotics, along with fiber and a shit ton of water helps

Do you take probiotics regularly? Is there a downside?

Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks. So how bad does a gap of 1-2 months appear to tech recruiters? Common knowledge is it is a disadvantage to the candidate from a salary negotiation process. I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.
